Kapusta, Women’s Golfers First at Purple Raider Classic

ALLIANCE, OHIO – Senior All-OAC and Academic All-OAC student-athlete Rebecca Kapusta (Independence) led a field of 46 golfers and the two-time defending Ohio Athletic Conference champion Baldwin Wallace University women's golf team finished first of eight teams at the University of Mount Union Purple Raider Classic at the par-72 and 5,945-yard Tannenhauf Golf Course in Alliance, Ohio.

BW shot an 18-hole total of 330 strokes today. Each team has five golfers in its starting lineup with the top four scores counting toward the team total.

Kapusta led the Yellow Jackets by firing a 79 to lead the field.

In addition, senior All-OAC, Academic All-OAC and CAPITAL ONE Academic All-American Brooke Hamilton (Cleveland/ St. Joseph Academy) carded an 81 to finish second. All-OAC junior Emilee Woolf (Ravenna) and junior Rebecca Jones (Hilliard/ Darby) shot 83 and 87, respectively. Freshman Sabre Adkins (Dublin/ Coffman) rounded out the starting lineup by shooting 97.
